Not to overdo the point, or continue any conversations that we've had already this week, but we have slightly revised the CGV's to better reflect some of the feedback we have received, as well as to add some clarity to certain issues.
Keep in mind, in the history of AN, we have had less than a handful of actual non-troll bannings, so these are the few-and-far-between exceptions. With any luck (and some cooperation), we won't have a further strike three discussion at all, for anyone. For me, personally, I think of AN as my family; sure, slightly dysfunctional at times, but I wouldn’t want to lose anyone; the discussions from all points of view only add to my A’s experience. I know many feel the same way; at the end of the day (and here at the beginning of the season), we all bleed green and gold.
So, I’m asking for your help, as the AN community. Due to overwhelming community feedback, we are looking to make it a more fair balance between front page writers and regular users on the CGV committee. We also believe front page writing is a big job on its own, and the time could be better split among more users. So we have have made some changes in the moderators (as previously stated, Nico is no longer on the committee), and we are now taking suggestions for two more spots from the AN community. If you know someone on the site who you think would be a good, fair, balanced person for the committee, please email me at baseballgirl1976 at hotmail.com with his/her name. We will take suggestions, and pick two of them to ask to join the team, if they want to. This is not a time-consuming job; the only job would be to log in and make decisions on flagged comments.
I sincerely want to thank everyone for their input; either on the recent threads, or private emails, from all sides of this issue. I know we are all trying to make AN the very best A’s experience out there, and it’s never going to be perfect for everyone, but we are striving to make it as good as we can. We appreciate all feedback; thanks for caring, and GO A’S!
